‘Accidentally Wes Anderson’ Instagram Account Collects Photos of Stunning Anderson-esque Spaces Around the World

A lovely collection of real places that mirror the filmmaker's vintage-obsessed, candy-colored aesthetic.

There’s bound to be at least one or two sad girl/boy Margot Tenenbaums and possibly a Steve Zissou at every Halloween party tonight, and the films of Wes Anderson — or should we say his vintage-obsessed, candy-colored aesthetic — are an inspiration to artists, designers, and pop-culture elitists. Instagram account Accidentally Wes Anderson, curated by Simon Sarris, invites audiences to submit photos of their own Anderson-esque locales around the world. (We first spotted the account on Honestly WTF.) Photos include Art Deco buildings in Los Angeles, an Indian royal palace, and more; find your own local Anderson-esque spot, submit a photo to the Instagram account, and gaze upon the beautiful works of architecture in our gallery in the meantime.
